A Review on Analysis of Friction Stir Welding Process of Steel

Authors(5) :-Vikash, Gopal Sahu, Prakash Kumar Sen, Ritesh Sharma, Shailendra Bohidar

Friction Stir Welding (FSW) is a solid state welding method and is common for aluminium alloys Friction Stir Welding is a novel green solid state joining process particularly used to join high strength aerospace aluminium alloys. This review paper addresses the overview of Friction stir welding which includes the basic concept of the process, microstructure formation, influencing process parameters, typical defects in FSW process and some recent applications. These welded joints have higher tensile strength to weight ratio and finer micro structure. FSW of aluminium alloys have the potential to hold good mechanical and metallurgical properties. This paper gives the review of basic concepts of Friction Stir Welding on tool design, mode of metal transfer and process parameters. It is demonstrated that FSW of aluminium is becoming an increasingly mature technology with numerous commercial applications.
